From current art to constructed space
Through contemporary art, the meeting discusses how constructed space is renewed and behaves under constraints other than those verifiable in environments that faithfully echoed the modern paradigm. More than stressing a peripheral modernity, it is about perceiving spaces conceived through appropriations, resistances, and inventions distinct from the Western hegemonic aesthetic and social project.
